Quote Of The Day
“Do u know who this is???? This is Wayde van Niekerk … He just won gold at the World Championships held in Beijing in the 400m in a time of 43.48 secs. The 4/5th fastest time ever recorded!!!! Yet, when he arrived back home at the airport, no media, no flashing cameras to welcome him back home and congratulating him on this fantastic achievement! Only his mother was waiting to welcome him back, and what a proud moment that must have been!!!”
– Facebook post by track fan Rene Smit, who recognized 400m world champ Wayde van Niekerk at the airport in South Africa when he returned home to a reception of zero fans and zero media. Thankfully his mom did show up.
